Computer Maintenance List to be Scrutinized

Currently this is my lift of things I do:

Keep a cloned HD that is known good and bookable also image your system every 3 months or more

keep Norton antivirus on the computer and make it run weekly Let Norton antivirus remove temp and browser temp files. - Check it often to see that it is not running defrag on a ssd and check to see if its doing what it is scheduled to do.

Use sync back free to backup the users folder or any other folder you are using and backup that backup weekly and also keep a copy offsite. Check on this weekly to see its working
back the registry up monthly -

look and see if any crap software was installed inadvertently and uninstall it

Every few years I refresh the system to a hard drive image I made - This requires me to run windows updates update office and quikbooks but I think its time well spent.

Are there things you do that are not on this list ?


thank you !

Use sync back free to backup the users folder or any other folder you are using and backup that backup weekly and also keep a copy offsite. If you save to Google drive or one drive on the pc it will be backed up in seconds and off site so you dontneed backup and you can access it anywhere in the world



Check on this weekly to see its working
back the registry up monthly - No point it changes every min so its out of date

It's Google sync you need to install that will do the backup and if you have more than one of it will sync to them as well. Note you have no limit on photos so you can backup as many as you like free I have over 200gig backed up and you can search on it as well
